Lock 43 is isolated with a sense of wilderness and therefore not practical to drive to by road. This is the deepest single chambered lock on the Waterway. An impressive ground surrounded by lush natural vegetation makes a quiet stop for boater camping and picnicking for the self-contained boater. It is a pack-in pack-out station.
